Potassium sulphate

Potassium sulphate, K2SO4 - an inorganic chemical compound, a salt of sulfuric acid and potassium.

Potassium sulphate (K2SO4), also called potassium sulphate, is the most popular low-chloride fertilizer. It combines in an optimal way the most important nutrients, potassium and sulfur, which are easily digested and available to plants. 50% of its composition is potassium oxide (K2O, 42% potassium) and 18% sulfur, which ensures optimal concentration of nutrients for plants.

As potassium sulphate is practically chloride free fertilizer, it is the best source of nutrients for plants sensitive to chlorides and for intensive cultivation systems (aquaria, greenhouses, film tunnels).

Unlike other sources of potassium, such as potassium chloride or potassium nitrate, potassium sulphate has a very low salinity index, which makes it the preferred potassium fertilizer in areas susceptible to soil salinity. These features make sulphate fertilizers the most effective fertilizers, as well as contribute to the fact that they are the most environmentally friendly.

Potassium is a macroelement, it accounts for about 1% of the plant's dry matter. This element is an activator of more than 50 enzymes, participates in osmoregulation and also preserves ionic equilibrium.

Symptoms of potassium deficiency appear first on older leaves. Plants take it in the form of K + ions. The most commonly used and used potassium source is potassium sulphate (K2SO4). Typically, doses from a few to a dozen or so ppm per week are used. In planted aquariums, in which this element is not given, there is a high probability of its deficiency. Water from the waterworks is sterilized and usually contains too little potassium in relation to the demand of plants.

Sample proportions of aquarium fertilization:

net aquarium volume 100 liters

volume of the prepared solution 500 ml

amount of K2SO4 - 35g

concentration in the aquarium after adding 1 ml of solution

K - 0.314mg / l

SO4 - 0.129 mg / l

It is also called potash sulphate and is the most popular low-chlorine fertilizer. It combines the most important nutrients - potassium and sulfur, which are easily assimilable to plants and easily accessible. 50% of its composition is potassium oxide (K2O, 42% potassium) and 18% sulfur, which ensures optimal concentration of these primers. It is the best source of nutrients for plants that are sensitive to chlorides and for intensive cultivation systems (aquariums, greenhouses, foil tunnels). Unlike other sources of potassium, such as potassium chloride or potassium nitrate, potassium sulphate has a fairly low salinity index, thanks to which it is the preferred potassium fertilizer for areas susceptible to soil salinity. Kraft fertilizers are the most effective and environmentally friendly. Potassium is a macroelement, which is about 1% of the plant's dry matter. It activates over 50 enzymes, and at the same time participates in osmoregulation and helps maintain ion balance. Symptoms of potassium deficiency are visible first on older leaves.

In planted aquariums where this element is not given, there is a high probability of a deficiency. Water from waterworks is sterilized and usually contains too little potassium in relation to the demand of plants.
